CD Review: Cloudmakers Five - Traveling Pulse

Jim Hart (vibraphone); Michael Janisch (double bass); Dave Smith (drums); Antonin-Tri Hoang (alto saxophone, clarinet) & Hannes Riepler (guitar).
(Review by Russell)
Cloudmakers Five is vibraphonist Jim Hart’s regular trio line-up augmented by Antonin-Tri Hoang playing alto saxophone and clarinet and Hannes Riepler, guitar. Recorded live at the Vortex over two nights in March of last year Traveling Pulse, with a total running time of 55:40, comprises six tracks and throughout there is an air of restraint with episodic, tangible excitement. One such break out section features a drum solo by Dave Smith which develops into a bout of free-ish playing from Hoang with leader Hart in the mood to improvise over Smith’s by now motoring rhythms on the CD’s fourth track The Road (For Ed).
Jim Hart has referred to the album ‘picking you up on a conveyor belt of rhythm and taking you off on an Escher-like journey somewhere’ and there is no better example of this than the penultimate track The Exchange with its rollercoaster journey to nowhere. The Austrian-born, London-resident guitarist Riepler soars high above his bandmates’ secure foundation on the final number which is dedicated to the late John Taylor, Cycle Song (for J.T).

Traveling Pulse by Cloudmakers Five is available now on Whirlwind Recordings (WR4719).
